Laser Therapy: Reduce Pain, Improve Mobility and Enhance the Quality of Your Pets Life….
Circle L Animal Hospital is proud to offer the cutting edge technology of Laser Therapy. Laser therapy provides an alternative solution to traditional pain management for your pet’s muscle and joint pain. In some cases you are able to discontinue the use of NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory), which can have long-term side effects on the liver and kidneys. In addition to aiding in arthritis management, the laser therapy can also be used post-operatively to encourage the healing process.
How it works
Low-level, also known as cold, laser therapy focuses red and infrared light on tissue at and below the surface of the skin. The light energizes the cellular mass, producing a structural protein called collagen used to repair tissue. Lasers continue the healing process by supporting vascular dilation and synthesis, increasing blood circulation to the affected region. The stimulation releases the body’s own pain-relieving hormones, generating mild pain management properties.
The process generally takes between 5 and 10 minutes, with the majority of patients seeing positive effects after 3-5 sessions. The treatment continues to relieve pain and fight inflammation for up to 24 hours following the session.

- Acute and Chronic Pain
